My name is Janahvi Ramakrishnan and I am an M.Arch grad from Penn State with a bachelor's background in Civil Engg from India.  I am design professional looking for full-time opportunities in the field of Architecture beginning this summer. 

I earned a bachelors degree in Civil Engineering in 2012 from India after which I started my Masters program in Civil Engineering at Penn State. Over the course of the first year, I realized that my interests and passion were strongly tied to Architecture, following which I started the M.Arch program in August 2013. My coursework at Penn State has introduced me to a good mix of projects ranging from micro housing, commercial and historical projects all of which have contributed to my skills. I am highly proficient in Revit, AutoCAD, Illustrator, InDesign, Rhino and Photoshop that I possess a good working knowledge of. I have also had previous internship experiences in drafting construction documents on AutoCAD and I have made significant contributions to the projects in preparing constructions drawings, diagramming, preparation of transmittals and project presentations.

As a design professional with a diverse background, I am accustomed to working under tight deadlines in a fast-paced, collaborative environment and I strongly believe that my ideas and background would help me in contributing significantly to the professional environments that I work in. Additionally, I believe that my undergraduate background in civil engineering adds value to my understanding of architecture that further helps in making significant contributions towards the projects that I am involved with.
